I enjoyed the food and appreciated the efficient waiters. I hope they can keep the live band that played on the night I visited. My friends and I even asked them to play our choices. Nice African music.

Very delicious seafood, local beer and nice people. It is not a place to go with the family but with friends, the music was to loud.

I enjoyed the music and seafood offered. The drinks are fairly affordable and they is enough parking space. It can get crowded (thus it's popularity) however if you do not mind crowds it's a great place on a night out to let loose with friends.

Too crowded especially on game night. Packed like sardines in a can. The food is average since the place is more of a pub than an actual restaurant.

I really like the decor and setting of the place, even from the entrance. I would go again only for that! Sea food is also good enough.

Thank Isabelle M
